What does IPTV stand for?

Internet protocol television

Techies use the acronym IPTV to refer to "Internet Protocol Television," which is TV content that is delivered via the Internet rather than satellite, cable, or traditional broadcast. Popular examples of IPTV services include Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max.

Users can access IPTV via their computers, smartphones, tablets, or televisions. Smart televisions contain pre-installed IPTV systems, while regular televisions can be upgraded to receive IPTV using plug-in receivers, such as the Apple TV box or Google Chromecast.
